This is the most remarkable mechanical achievement to date. A purely mechanical digital analog, the ultimate wind-up toy. For me, this is the embodiment of all that is facinating about mechanical watches. The brilliance to conceive, the skill to build, and the creativity to take it beyond mere functionality, all powered by an out of date technology, a metal spring.

On the technical side, the line segments of the digits are pins with two colored strips on opposite sides and black strips in between, which rotate to present either a color segment or black to make the digit. A total of 23 segments rotating in a horological ballet…

I do so completely want. And for another small taste before we go…

Thanks, www.Gizmodo.com and De Grisogono!

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
